Overwatch is a popular first-person team shooter by Blizzard and while not many thought this game would become popular, it seems it’s doing pretty well, with more gamers purchasing it every day.

As with all its titles, Blizzard is continuously working on the game, releasing new patches and new heroes. The latest patch released for Overwatch introduces many bug fixes and features, along with a new sniper support hero named Ana.

Here is a list of changes this new patch comes with:

Gameplay:

– In case a match goes overtime for more than 20 seconds, the fuse will start to “burn down” faster
– During overtime, players will have their respawn time increased by 2 seconds

Competitive Play:

– A bug that was causing some players to not be able to rejoin games has been fixed

– Friend requests toasts can be turned on or off
– Friend notifications can now be turned on or off
– Whispers can not be turned on or off.
– 21:9 aspect ratio has been added

Bug Fixes

– The Hero gallery will “remember” the last hero you were looking for and highlight it whenever you will return to the gallery

– A bug that was causing the “payload is nearing its final destination” music to continue playing even after the match was over has been fixed
